2009 Hyundai Elantra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 1000 miles
I have this " pinging" noise under the car/hood. I believe it to be the catalytic converter. I was told by the dealership it is normal. I get that. However, it annoys me " big time.&Quot; There must be some way to fix this, even if it means replacing the c.C. I don't like that my car pings like crazy once it reaches temp and for 10 mins. After I shut it off. It drives me nuts! This is the first car that has done this that I bought (unfortunately I did not hear it when I test drove the car). So whatever it is that made the other cars not do it I want to do to this car so it is quiet.
Everyone keep telling me " deal with it.&Quot; I also realize most people would not care, but I just do. LOL! There must be something I can do about it. I have researched suggestions like upgrading the gas I use and replacing the catalytic converter. What do you suggest? I don't want a " ping crazy" car.
